Oh boy! It’s Deadhead Pinterest Time! (Does anyone here do Pinterest? I don’t, but it sounds horribly addictive.)

Anyway, I’m not big on wearing skull/skeleton imagery … it just feels too macho for me, although I definitely agree that the skull emblem symbolizes the band infinitely more than the darned dancing fuzzy-wuzzy bears.

There’s so much amazingly great art from the band's visual universe, but in terms of single iconic images, here are my favorites:
